House Hunters and House Hunters International are two perennial favorite HGTV reality shows, both of which follow a homebuyer’s adventure as they scout, tour, and finally select a home. We get a peek into the real estate markets all over the world in this highly watched show, touring condos, townhomes, and all sorts of houses during the 30-minute show.

Of course, while this show is considered “reality TV,” you don’t see everything that’s happening as the buyers are looking for their next home, says Ebby Halliday Realtor Cynthia Lopez, who starred in an episode of House Hunters that debuted in January. We got an exclusive interview with Lopez, and she offered a lot of insight into the popular HGTV series.

“I had never really watched the show,” Lopez said with a laugh, but her clients, De’Andre and Tasha were big fans and had already been talking to the production company.
